Arts Development UK Skills Bank

Arts Development UK is developing a skills and knowledge bank for its membership. With nearly 400 corporate and individual members in place, our membership reflects a wealth of personal experience and knowledge that members can benefit from. Like a bank, you can deposit skills that you would like to share and also borrow knowledge from other members who have lodged their interests with us. The Skills bank will also earn you interest in the form of credits that you can use towards the AD:uk National Fellowship Programme, launched at our conference in October. If you are interested in participating in shared and informal knowledge exchange (and please note that this is not a mentoring programme), please complete the following section:
